2016 is coming to an end and it was a wonderful year for Major League Baseball and its fans. The sport seemed to enjoy a resurgence in popularity, largely due to the fact that the lovable losers, the Chicago Cubs, finally ended their title drought. However, that wasn’t the only reason 2016 was exciting. We saw more young, bright stars break out across the league as the youth infusion continues. It’s looking like we’re set up for a fun next several seasons with all of the young blossoming talent in the league.
As we say farewell to another year, it’s time to make some fun, bold predictions for the 2017 season.
